The Green Revolution, or the Third Agricultural Revolution, is the set of research technology transfer initiatives occurring between 1950 and the late 1960s, that increased agricultural production worldwide, beginning most markedly in the late 1960s. In species that are amenable to in vitro somatic embryogenesis such as alfalfa, (lucerne; Medicago sativa), relatively rapid and efficient transformation methods have been developed based on cocultivation of tissue pieces (explants) withAgrobacterium tumefaciens. Transgenic white clover. L. japonicus was suggested as a model system for legume genomics by Handberg and Stougaard (1992). Thus, further exploration of meristem culture systems as targets for transformation in other legumes likely will be productive in expanding the range of genotypes that can be transformed. Some advances are already commercialized, others are in the process of development. Development of soybean transformation systems from meristems provides an interesting case study illustrating this point. Proceedings of a symposium on recent advances in crop production held at Kanpur, February, 1970. The beneficial use of the crop has been extended to include feed for grass-cutter and as a replacement for mineral fertilizers in small-holder farms. However, other improvements such as the development of feathered trees, development of minimal pruning strategies and physiological studies of limb angle have also contributed to the dramatic changes in tree density. gene overexpression, gene suppression, promoter analysis, T-DNA tagging, and expression of genes for crop improvement, requires efficient transformation systems that produce low frequencies of tissue culture-induced phenotypic abnormalities in the transgenic plants. advances in the development of germplasm and varieties in recent centuries have made these fruit species highly productive (Hauagge, 2000) and made them a critical part of the global tree fruit industry. Recent Advances in Flowering Time Control. In addition to other positive attributes as a model system, transformation of hypocotyls with A. tumefaciens is relatively efficient via shoot organogenesis. Organic production of fruit crops. www.plantphysiol.org/cgi/doi/10.1104/pp.102.017681. For example, in soybean, development of a selection system based on hygromycin B greatly increased transgenic plant production and reduced both the number of non-transformed escapes and time in culture (Olhoft et al., 2003). Packaging had been found to control or even eliminate durian odours. Advances in Production Technology of Root Vegetables Raj Kumar 208-222 20 Recent Techniques in Seed Production of Cole Crops Chander Parkash and Sandeep Kumar 223-236 21. which led to the development of diseases and pest. Trieu and Harrison (1996) described a method based on cocultivation ofA. This book is intended as a professional basic book for post-graduate level students of Recent Advances in Integrated Farming Systems. Chinese milk vetch is grown as a green manure, for animal fodder, as a nectar source for bees, and can be used to volatilize selenium from soil. It goes on to provide new and important recent research advances on many different aspects of rice science and production. Recent advances in crop production. Transformation theoretically expands the sources of genes for plant improvement to all organisms, far beyond the gene pool accessible via sexual hybridization. However, the majority of the most recent reports are focused on A. tumefaciens-mediated transformation. Advances in Crop Science and Technology is the field dealing with the selection, Breeding, Crop productivity, Seed production, Organic cover crops, Crop technology transpiration, Field crops research, domestic animals, Crop and irrigation technology. Advances in Nano-fertilizers and Nano-pesticides in Agriculture: A Smart Delivery System for Crop Improvement explores the use of nanotechnology for the controlled delivery of pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers that improve the safety of products while also increasing the efficiency of food production and decreased environmental pollution.
